#24 Why were we all amazed when President Biden elected a nurse as Interim Surgeon General? Why wasn't a nurse appointed to the White House COVID task force from day one? Why are there 4.3 million nurses in the US but we still don't have a united voice?

In this episode, I sit down with Marketa Houskova, Executive Director of American Nurses Association/California to discuss why nurses routinely do not have a seat at the table. She shares how nurses have siloed themselves into specialties, which has created a lack of a unified voice for our profession. Less than 20 percent of nurses utilize their voice to change policies and advocate for what our profession needs and in this episode you will learn the #1  thing you can do as a nurse today to secure our seat where it is needed-leading healthcare nationally and globally.
